The spine is the central vertebral column providing for mobility and integrity of the trunk. Many yoga poses, especially back bends and twists, require flexibility in our spinal joints that are largely influenced by skeletal and bone shape variations.
‘Core’ muscular and fascial support for spinal stability, while essential, is often not well-understood. This workshop aims to equip students with a clear understanding of the spine and ‘core’ anatomy to learn how to work the spine safely in yoga poses.
- Overview of spine and core anatomy
- How range of motion is determined by individual bone shape and orientation
- How to practise yoga safely by understanding where restriction lies
- Inner alignment cues to engage and support the spine
- A guided Vinyasa Flow sequence that works the spine in a balanced way
Proposed itinerary for 2 hours
- 1 hour lecture on the anatomy of the spine and core
- 1 hour practice of vinyasa flow focusing on spinal mobility and integrity
